Richmond Heights

In the northeast corner of Cuyahoga County sits Richmond Heights, Ohio. It is home to an estimated 10,342 residents and covers an area of 4.44 square miles. A suburb of Cleveland, Richmond Heights is 13 miles northeast of the city and only 19 minutes away by car. It was originally founded in 1917 as the village of Claribel, but a year later it was renamed Richmond Heights.

Richmond Heights is one of the most diverse cities in the area in more ways than one. There’s diversity in ethnicity (white people make up only 48.5% of the population), education levels (the percentage of people with different levels of college degrees sits right at the national average), income level (the median household income is $11,000 below the national average) and employment industries (lots of health care, education, and manufacturing workers, but a high percentage of people in management positions). Providing those who live there with an urban feel, Richmond Heights is also diverse in the percentage of people who own homes (63%) and those who rent (37%). The city’s diversity has proved to be its strength, as those who call it home rhapsodize about the sense of community it offers, the kindness of the people, the cleanliness of the streets, sidewalks, and yards, and the visibility and capability of the police.

Should you find yourself in the mood for some protein, there are three restaurants located within a mile from each other in the northern part of the city. Michael’s Bar and Grille, B2’s Bourbon and BBQ, and the 5 Points Grille all offer meat-based entrees that should satisfy your hunger. Or, if you feel like mixing it up there are two highly-rated ethnic-food restaurants right down the road from the aforementioned trio: Jubilee Armenian and Hibachi Taste.
